Curiouser and curiouser
Oni I think you may be on to something. I have been holding back comments because there was nothing solid. I think I may have found something that is very curious.

but he also said this.

I am the oldest so I got his room,


So did the uncle live with him or not? Seems the story is getting mixed up and confused.

To Our Creationist Friends
I would like to use post 75 & 76 as witness to your efforts here at EvC as being not in vain. While you may have yet to convince any atheists to turn their paths away from the evilotion, you have convinced two members, Onifre and Theodoric, to read like you.

Some inconsistencies don't you think?

Why, yes, Onifre, I do. Just not mine.

lyx writes:

Uncle didnít become an invalid the day he fell ill: before I even started school. He had his own house to live in. Was he not allowed to home school me unless he live in the same house as I?

Theo reads what lyx writes:

He had his own house to live in. Was he not allowed to home school me unless he live in the same house as I?

He did eventually become and invalid. Through stages. Iíll walk you through them. He stayed in that house. Then he stayed in this house. And now he stays in that urn.

Just like you creationist, they weave stories in their heads and itís up to others to undo the knots. Knots they clinch their righteous fists.

Is it not wonderful. The Lord works in mysterious ways. But beware Creationists, now is not the time to rest on your laurels. Even now, others roll their eyes in disbelief and apply critical thought. Turn them; slowly turn them to the brown side of the force.

Re: Oni, Iím Ďome
Thank you cd. Corrections are always appreciated. I used ďareĒ for ďourĒ the other day and didnít catch it. A thirteen year old caught it. There has to be some trick to proofreading that Iím not getting. Way too many slip by me.

A correction such as ďThe nut isnít a point mass, Homeslice.Ē when I write things like ďThe nut will not be spinning at all.Ē would be helpful too.

Yes, there is. The secret is to have somebody else proofread it, instead of proofreading it yourself.

And no, I don't follow that advice either.

The problem is that when you are reading your own post, you read what you think is there rather than what actually is there.

The famous squirting handle
The real skinny at the school I currently attend is that one doesnít take a second semester courses in either of the two rooms adjoining the memorial garden: they get no sun in February nor air in May; also, the handle of the second urinal squirts water down ones shirt when flushed. I was unable to find either of these facts on the world wide web.

Really?

Why am I reminded of Spaceballs where Dark Helmet checks the video of the film Spaceballs to see what happens next...

Fast forward through this bit. In fact, never show it again.
